Non Relationship Girl

a girl who is somehow outside relationships

Trope
In fiction, the female is usually a factor in romantic or sexual relationships. They are either portrayed as being a "slut" and chasing after all the guys, or a "prude" and having to overcome this in order to find her true love.

And then there's this girl. Like the Non-Action Guy, a girl who rather than being into relationships or actively averse to them, could not care less is somehow counter to what's expected of women. Since relationships are a two-way street, in order to fulfill this requirement, not only are they not interested in anyone romantically, but there doesn't seem to be anyone interested in them.

Often a trait of the Emotionless Girl, although some of them can in fact become involved in relationships (somehow) despite their deadpan personality.

Examples:

  • Takano Akira from School Rumble qualifies. In romantic diagrams, she is interested in nobody romantically, and nobody is interested in her. The closest she seems to have is a rivalry with a male student.

    The description is confusing, especially the part: "Since relationships are a two-way street, in order to fulfill this requirement, not only are they not interested in anyone romantically, but there doesn't seem to be anyone interested in them". If a relationship is a two-way street, then surely either/or is sufficient for a non-relationship, there's no need for both. That is, it's only a relationship if both parties are involved, so it's a non-relationship if either (or both) parties are not involved. Or are we counting unrequited loves as "relationships"?

    See also Asexuality.

    If you have the girl pursued but not acting upon it, there's still shipping taking place. This is about a person that can't even be viewed as a Tsundere because she's just sort of outside the dating game.

    Yea, I suppose it is similar to Asexuality.

    I'm pretty sure this is an aversion of something, not its own trope.
